Polly Clarke, the author of highly-coloured romantic novels, arrives on the island to rent a cottage and Ted is smitten - though the others in the house are not exactly encouraging. Polly invites Ted for drinks, which means he has to rush through a mass he is giving for some visiting nuns, and on arriving at Polly's cottage finds it is a house-warming party, not an intimate twosome, with the nuns amongst the guests. In fact after everybody else has left Polly dashes Ted's hopes even further by announcing that she wants to become a nun. Written by don @ minifie-1

In the episode "The Passion of Saint Tibulus (#1.3)" Bishop Brennan states "And that's where you and Larry and Moe come in", a reference to "The Three Stooges". The third Stooges name was Curly.

Mrs. Doyle: It's a bit much for me, Father. "Feck this" and "Feck that"
Father Ted Crilly: Yes, Mrs Doyle.
Mrs. Doyle: "You big bastard." Oh, Dreadful Language. "You big hairy arse." "You big Fecker." Fierce Stuff! And of course the F-word father, the bad F-word. Worse then Feck. You know the one I mean.
Father Ted Crilly: Yes, I do, Mrs Doyle
Mrs. Doyle: "F you" "F your effing wife" I don't know why they have to use language like that. "I'll stick this effing pitch up your hole" That was another one.
Father Ted Crilly: I see what you mean, Mrs Doyle
Mrs. Doyle: "Bastard this" and "Bastard that". ...

You're thinking of the episode "Rock-A-Hula" (the "Lovely Girls" episode)...
24 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...in the second season, with Clare Grogan (as C.P. Grogan for union reasons) as a guest star playing Niamh Connelly - an angry, Sinead O'Connor-esquire pop star. Grogan had a pop band in the early 80's called "Altered Images".

"And God Created Woman" finds Ted uncomfortable with seemingly coincidental, non-stop, run-ins with a woman who writes steamy novels (Ted's guilty pleasure) and who takes an apparent interest in Ted - eventually ending up at the Parochial House to stay for the evening. Ted's extreme discomfort with this, mixed with his attraction to the woman, lead to the usual fun.
